Never seen this before. Whatever's in that frame bag must be really important.

More that fork mounts are one spot that smaller frames (or space limited frames, not all will be small in size) have space for a bottle. Some fat tired bikes do this as example. Andy.

Lots of ways to carry stuff. Options are great. Very popular with the bike packing riders. Many mountain bikes only have one or, gasp, zero water bottle mounts. Frame bags are a great way to carry stuff when your mt bike can't use a rear rack, like a full suspension bike.

before I went to a suspension fork, my fat bike had a bottle mounted there. I could only get one into the frame. I would never use a frame bag, anything hits my legs and I start pedaling funny
